Optometrist | Contact Lens Specialist | Eyewear
At Opticks, we know that every single person who walks through our doors is placing the health of their sight and the quality of their life in our hands and minds. That is a great trust. That is why we are big believers in using not just the latest technology and diagnostic equipment (such as our new 3D Retinal Eye Health Scanner), but also using all the strength we can muster in our own minds and hearts. It is too important a responsibility not to.
I am a skilled optometrist and owner of Opticks, your independent local optician in Woodhall Spa. It is my privilege to head the team of experts who make your eyecare their priority. I also specialise in the treatment of visual stress and dyslexia with colorimetry. What we do for our customers is so much more than just our job. It is our passion and our vision.
I have worked in the practice for the previous owner since 1995 and for Opticks since its wonderful and exciting start in December 2014 when Julie-Anne took over the business. I dispense spectacles following the eye examinations, I get very enthusiastic when assisting to choose frames. I want everyone to look and feel fabulous. I give professional advice on all types of lenses considering lifestyle and needs. I wear contact lenses and varifocal lenses. My most recent frame is an Oakley acetate. When I drive at night I use a special tinted lens with an anti-reflective finish to soften the glare from the oncoming headlights. Working for an independent optician means that I have the time to make everyone feel welcome to enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere at Opticks.
I have worked at this practice for the previous owner since 2006 in the role of receptionist and optical assistant and continued when Julie-Ann took over the business in December 2014. I am in the hot seat every Monday greeting customers and making appointments. I also undertake general administrative duties.
I fit spectacles and do minor repairs to frames. Not only this, but I make a great cup of tea. Why not ask for one next time you are in! My favourite aspect of my role is meeting our customers and developing a friendly relationship that helps to put people at ease and enhances our service.
At the moment I am wearing OGI frames with Shamir transition freeform varifocal lenses, which I love but being surrounded by so many fabulous styles I am known to change quite often!
I am Julie-Anne’s husband. I am responsible for all the paperwork and accounts. I also manage the reception and I am training to be an optical assistant. I wear spectacles from the Oakley range.
